    Of course, with the sanctions coming, he can say the "place was burned to the ground, it really was" and mean it....

    sounds like a perfect opportunity for Hawk.

    The guy is pretty nifty when it comes to turning around the tarnished images of historically successful programs. Just sayin'.

    I just took a peek at the Trojan board and they seem pretty happy with this turn of events.

    I think Mariucci would have been a better choice for USC, personally. However as I said before, USC needed a guy with NFL connections. They couldn't very well have replaced an NFL guy with a measley college guy. That just wouldn't do. Kiffin will probably do pretty well at USC. He worked there before, he is bringing in some outstanding assistants, and the rest of the Pac 10 still isn't all that good. The problem, of course, is that there's no way that he'll be able to keep that group of assistants together for more than a year or two. What happens after that will be very interesting.

    Darn, I was hoping they would go with Hack. Get him off our hands.

    They're following the playbook that they wrote themselves. Hire a former NFL guy with connections to good assistants and can recruit. I don't follow USC all that closely, but what I do see is a team with NFL talent up and down the lineup that consistently under-performs. By most accounts, USC shouldn't have lost a single game in the last five years. Their MO is to out-talent everybody they can, and get motivated for the teams they can't (which might be one or two games a year). Kiffin will fits their mold. He'll do fine, but I'm not concerned about USC winning any national championships anytime soon.

    USC went from a top-notch elite program to second tier inside of a week. They're looking at some mediocrity in the near future. CU needs to be in the mix for taking some of the SoCal kids who would have otherwise gone to USC w/ Carroll there.

    The Kiffen hiring comes down to their thoughts that "at least he can recruit like a banshee". I think it's over-rated. Callahan recruited at Nebraska and they got worse. Neuheisel recruited great, but none of his programs have gotten better under his watch. Lot's of examples of this in fact. They are paying thru the nose for their assistants and that may save them. Personally, I think they would have been way better off raiding Utah, TCU, Air Force, UConn......

    Kiffen will retain them a great class this year, but 3-4 years from now that won't matter. If they are competing for national championships, they will get the best kids from SoCal. If they are not, they won't.

    Big loser here could be Slick's UCLA program. I see his situation as identical to USC's but now he stands to lose Norm Chow and that could be a big blow to their 2010 class and their ability to win long term. Slick needs high priced and high profile assistants and losing Chow would be a blow.
